2 Days, 6 Talanoas, 12 Movement Workshops, and artists from every region in the Pacific joining Pacific youth from all over the world.

 

The 'Youth4Pacific: Pre-COP Gathering' will bring together young Pasifika people worldwide to collaborate and unify youth advocacy and engagement in climate policy in the lead-up to COP26 in November.

 

The gathering is an opportunity to crowdsource our collective wisdom and leverage best practices and experiences on matters relating to adaptation, mitigation, and climate resilience.

 

The two-day gathering will culminate in the formation and endorsement of a Youth4Pacific Declaration on Climate Change for COP26. This document will capture the actions and solutions identified by participants highlighting the region’s key priorities and reflecting on the aspirations and needs of young people in the Pacific and will be championed in both the Conference of Youth (COY16) and the UNFCCC Climate Negotiations (COP26) by Pacific youth representatives.
